    Big, bright windows are a major selling point for all homes. Once you move in, those beautiful windows can run up your utility bills and leave you wanting for privacy.

    Window treatments are a great way to protect your privacy and save energy. The best window privacy options reflect your style and allow natural light in.

    Not sure what window treatments will work for you? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Dollar Curtains + Blinds has all the window privacy options to suit your tastes and needs.

    Read on for a list of options that will work well for your home.

    Roller Blinds

    Roller blinds are made of panels of fabric that cover the width and length of your windows. They are ideal for people with specific tastes because they are highly customisable.

    Choose from sheer or opaque fabrics, all of which are able to maintain their original quality after exposure to the bright Australian sun. Roller blinds can be opened and closed through chain control, spring-loaded operation, or motorisation.

    If you're looking for versatility and easy customisation, these blinds will work for you.

    Roman Blinds

    Roman blinds are traditionally an opaque window covering made from blockout fabrics. They are designed to be raised to let light in during the day and lowered at night to protect your privacy.

    Roman blinds have beautiful fabric folds when drawn open and create a more decorative look. Depending on the fabric you choose, roman blinds can have a modern or traditional appearance.

    Venetian blinds are the most traditional of all the window treatments. This is a window treatment to go for when you're working with a tight budget.

    Venetian blinds consist of slatted blinds that can be opened or closed through the use of a cord. They can be the sole window treatment, or complemented with the use of curtain panels.

    Sheer Curtains

    Sheer curtains allow light in during the day while allowing for daytime privacy. They also allow you to look out and take in surrounding views. These curtains are made of very sheer fabric that is opened or closed through a pulley system that pinches or pleats the fabric together. This sheer fabric acts to diffuse and soften the natural light.

    Sheer curtains are great for adding height to rooms with low ceilings, and for softening up the look of bare walls and windows. They are ideal to layer with blockout curtains or blinds so you can achieve day and night time privacy as well as light control at night time with the blockout fabric.

    Interior Plantation Shutters

    There are many different types of shutters available for the interior of your home, but plantation shutters are one of the best. These shutters are hinged to the window and consist of slatted blinds inside a frame.

    Plantation shutters are super versatile. You can open the blinds within the shutters, or pull or fold the shutters away from the window to allow lots of light to come in. Close them at night for privacy.

    Use Any of These Window Privacy Options

    Protecting the privacy of your home doesn't mean you have to sacrifice natural light and style. Window privacy options make the most of natural light, style, and privacy so you'll have a home that is both beautiful and secure.

    They also have the added benefit of energy savings during those sweltering Australian summers. Want to learn more about window privacy options that are perfect for your home? Contact us today for your free in-home measure and quote.

    Australia is one of the sunniest places in the world. As much as we enjoy those warm rays, sometimes we like to close off our home from the bright daylight.

    Regular curtains don't make the cut. They block some of the light streaming in, but there's still a lot getting through.

    If you're serious about controlling the light level in your home, window blockout curtains are the best option available.

    What Are Window Blockout Curtains?

    These curtains don't look all that different from your regular curtains. The main differences are that light blocking curtains tend to be of a thicker fabric.

    This is because the fabric itself has a special lining that blocks out the light from getting past. If you've used regular curtains in the past, you know that even if you close all of those small spaces, a warm glow of light still gets into the room.

    Blockout curtains, on the other hand, keep any light at all from getting through.

    Benefits of a Blockout Curtain

    These curtains are excellent at blocking out light from coming into your home's interior. Not only that, they also help out your home in a lot of other different ways as well.

    Protect Furniture and Flooring

    Sunlight is great, but it's dangerous as well. This is true for both you and your family, as well as your belongings.

    After extended exposure to sunlight, some flooring types and furniture will start to fade in colour. They'll lose their vibrancy and look a lot older. With the help of these curtains, however, you won't have to worry as much about the state of the interior of your home.

    Colourful Options Available

    The name "blockout curtain" makes it seem as though these curtains would only be available in the darkest of colours. If you're a fan of bright colours, you're in luck.

    These special curtains come in all kinds of different colours and patterns. You won't need to sacrifice your interior decorating when using these curtains.

    Helps in Heat Regulation + Energy Efficiency

    These curtains do more than controlling the amount of light coming into your home. They also help in blocking or keeping in heating or cooling.

    Windows influence the temperature of your house in a passive but significant way. But the curtains regulate this passive change in temperature.

    During the summer months, these curtains will keep the intense heat from seeping into your home and warming it up along with keeping in the cool temperature. But during the winter, the heat you warm your house with won't escape into the cold surrounding your home.

    These benefits also ensure you can reduce your energy bills and ultimately reduce your carbon footprint. It's a win win!

    Blockout Curtains Are the Bedroom's Best Friend

    There are a great many uses for these special window blockout curtains. Things like afternoon TV show binging and playing video games during the day all benefit. But by far the most popular is using them in a bedroom.

    Blockout or lined curtains often referred to as drapes, are Ideal for bedrooms when you want to obtain complete darkness for a good night's sleep. You really can’t go past blockout curtains with the addition of pelmets for complete light control and darkness for a bedroom.

    Napping children (and adults!) and late shift workers alike will be thankful for these curtains in their room.

    Not To Forget Theatre Rooms

    There are many window coverings to choose from for theatre rooms but time and time again interior designers always opt for custom made blockout curtains with the addition of custom-made pelmets for theatre or TV rooms.

    They are the ultimate choice to create complete darkness in a room to allow you to create a real theatre ambiance. You can also ensure the curtains are made slightly longer in length so they sit on the floor to ensure light doesn’t enter underneath.
